Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Is your power still off? Blame the IBEW! For the second time since Huricane Sandy their unionista thugs put solidarity above customer service.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, it seems to be pretty clear that residents of New York City and the surrounding areas could use all the help they can get.
However, a Davisburg man said some people in the area are more interested in "protecting their turf" than in distributing those supplies to the masses.
Mike James, an independent trucker, said he and three other truckers were told to haul a load of transformers to the city to replace equipment anticipated to be lost in the storm.
James, two men from Holly and a Flint man arrived in the city Tuesday night and slept in their trucks before attempting to deliver the 144 transformers to emergency workers.
When they arrived Wednesday, they were turned away by Con Edison employees because they were not union workers.
They spent $1,400 of their own money to try and help New York City.
And the IBEW thanked them as only a union could.
"They called them scabs and sent them home. They said those people were taking food out of their families. mouths."
Look for the union label. And run away.
At least now I know who to blame for freezing in the dark.
